The Five Roads / The Coming Dawn
Label: Epact Music
If ravers live for the night, then new agers feel most alive in the wee hours of the morning. Signifying rebirth and new beginnings, this is the time for meditation, healing and other endeavors vital to spiritual well-being. Heavily inspired by Clannad, Nightingale capture the essence of dawn with a fusion of peppy Celtic folk and adult contemporary pop. Yet the band maintains a certain ephemeral quality, allowing its music to drift in and out of consciousness with subtlety and grace.
